Cathy Browne


I wear many hats.

I’m a damn good event, lifestyle and travel photographer who happens to be legally blind. I use my unique perspective and my camera to capture images and share a world I can’t see myself. I’m an arts reporter for Vanity Buzz, and review theatre, dance and music – front row, centre!

I’m also a veteran PR gal, content creator, community builder and accessibility advocate.

I blog at Seeing Things –

I love everything Apple, photo-walking, my cats, wine, really hot sake, Japanese food, politics, CBC Radio, and trivia. I’m a hugger.

Talk Title: Aim, Pray, Shoot - My Journey as a Blind Photographer

Sometimes, our true talents go unnoticed for years, lying dormant till someone or something brings them out. This happened to me – and I want to share my special journey through my photographs to encourage everyone to embrace and nurture the gifts we all have.

I did something similar last year in a very tiny room. I hope to encourage a larger audience this year:-)
